    I got a form back from Student Finance, it basically says:

    Tuition Fee (the total amount we pay to your university or college)
    £8,250.

    Maintenance loan (not counting household income, this will be paid to you)
    £3,610.

    Is the 3,610 what I'm gonna have to live on (food etc) and does my accommodation money come out of this??? (paying 100pw)

    Is there a chance I will get more? If I have to get accommodation etc out of this, its gonna be impossible unless they grant me more money. Help?

    I think you can apply for a maintenance grant too. I think I've got a loan and a grant. Try and look into that.

    Yes, I always paid with my maintenance loan for my halls and lived off my grant, like I said depending on your families circumstances you should be entitled to both.

    Check the actual finance website it should tell you there, I had a friend who paid for her halls because she wasn't entitled to the grant and she worked whilst at uni to go out and stuff. But I was entitled to both.

    I have applied for a grant, my dad is a single parent and didn't earn a lot of money last year, so I definitely qualify for more. But when will I find out when they've granted me the extra money?

    I got my grant through on my loan letter if it's not on there it's worth ringing them.
